The Center forAcademic & Bar Readiness

The mission of the Center for Academic & Bar Readiness (CABR) is to provide an innovative, constantly evolving program employing sound educational principles to help La Verne Law students achieve their highest academic potential by cultivating and enhancing their academic skills. We accomplish this mission by:

  • strengthening students’ confidence, ability and self-efficacy;
  • helping students develop and practice critical academic and legal skills; and
  • guiding students through the process of becoming self-regulated learners.

By developing and practicing critical academic and legal skills, students create a strong foundation to succeed in law school, on the bar exam, and in the practice of law.

About the Center for Academic & Bar Readiness

La Verne Law established The Center for Academic & Bar Readiness as a resource to help La Verne Law students identify and strengthen critical academic and legal skills during law school.  CABR counselors are available to counsel students on study skills, outlining and exam techniques.  CABR counselors also provide support and guidance to those who find it challenging to adapt to law school.  Through its academic and bar readiness programs, the CABR supports and collaborates with students as they develop and enhance the critical skills necessary for achievement in law school, on the bar exam, and in the legal profession.
